For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email - I'm often waiting on feedback from our hiring managers. Once I hear from them, I can come back to the email and let our candidate know! Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Enthusiasm! Candidates that have researched the position and our company always stand out. It's refreshing to speak with people who are excited (and sound excited) about seeing if Extra Space is a great fit for them. Personally, I'm thrilled when people interview like normal human beings instead of robots trying to hit every buzzword in the book. Passionate. Driven. KPI's. Motivated. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Resume. We appreciate it when people apply online since we'll have to get their information in our system anyways. Cover letters are nice, but only if written like a real person. No one understands what your skills are when you attempt the following phrase (or those like it): A motivated, passionate, conscientious, problem solving, hard working team player. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: A sloppy resume filled with spelling errors or applying for EVERY job on our careers page (200+ jobs). We've seen a few people apply to everything from our Sr. Director roles to our hourly positions. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What do you like to do in your free time? Soccer, longboarding, hiking, mountain biking, anything adventurous and a bit dangerous. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? We've been growing like crazy and I've learned quite a lot. Not respecting limits has been one of those lessons. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Waffle Wednesdays, food truck events, baseball games and company outings to the zoo are all events we've had in the past few months. In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Everyone is pretty relaxed and they're always willing to help out if you have questions.

If the stress of juggling school, work, and family is making life difficult, you are not alone. According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
